My membership in the American College of Surgeons dates back nearly 30 years. The sole focus of the 84,000-member professional society should be improving the standard of surgical care, but in recent years the college has prioritized the promotion of critical race theory and so-called anti-racism. Like many radicalized organizations, the College has begun punishing members who raise concerns about its new agenda.
The elevation of the college’s ideology – and the demotion of surgery – came quickly. I saw the first signs in 2019 when the college invited me Joan Y Reede to deliver his prestigious Annual Lecture. dr Reede is Dean of Diversity and Community Partnership at Harvard Medical School. The theme of her speech was “A Journey to Diversity, Inclusion and Excellence”.
